There is an app for everything, or so they say. The thing is, have we actually run out of the number of apps for different purposes available? Perhaps, or perhaps not, but here we are with the world famous iPad strutting its stuff in a new pilot project that is being implemented by the US Department of Veterans Affairs, where this project will see the loan of more than 1,000 iPads to home-based caregivers which will assist veterans who have suffered severe injuries in the past.
This particular program works this ways – caregivers will be able to receive assistance to help improve the communication as well as health and patient reports, which are currently being performed either over the telephone, or in a manual manner whenever a patient visits a doctor’s office or VA medical center. These iPads have been specially loaded with 9 custom build applications where the caregivers will make use of in order to report and update information that have been incorporated into a larger patient profile. You will find a wealth of information there concerning pain management, prescriptions refills and other health assessments. Anything that helps make life a whole lot easier and more convenient is always a good thing in our books.
